I WANTED TO TRY A 17x7 I WENT OUT AND BOUGHT ONE TO SEE IF IT FIT AND OF COURSE IT DID NOT, STUCK OUT TOO MUCH FROM THE WHEEL WELL. EVEN THOUGH I WAS TOLD IT WILL WORK.

BTW NICE CAR.
You need to consult http://www.dodgestang.com/Tire%20Fit...ide%2065-6.pdf to get a feel for numerous tire and wheel combo's on your stang. I just went through similar search and ended up with 15X7 Torq Thrust D's with 225 60 15 tires on my 68 vert. I looked at numerous posts and tried several websites to come up with what I thought looked best. Here's another example:http://www.mustangsteve.com/rideheight.html. Lastly, I found a local tire dealer who was comfortable ordering in the rims I wanted, and test-mounted several tire options so I could see the right one for my vehicle (at a reasonable price) Good luck
If for somereason your car has the incorrect rear end or wilwood disc brakes they would affect your track...more than likely though, the store you bought the wheels from gave you a story and the wheels were just wrong for your application.
